Question: Hi Doctor, My baby girl, she is about 4 weeks old. My baby is crying out loud while pushing the poop. When she is asleep she is not crying only cries because of wetness. But when she is awake, and tries to push the poop or gas ... she is almost crying breathless. We feel she feels pain when gas or pain.

Brief Answer:
This is common while passing urine and motion and also evening colic

Detailed Answer:
Hi...Thank you for consulting in here.

There are 2 possibilities here -
1. Crying while passing urine and motion is common in babies of this age. Nothing needs to be done for this.
2. Evening colic

I will explain you more about evening colic and is quite common in this age group. This happens when the baby sucks at the breast very fast and in eagerness to drink milk will gulp in air too. Unless the air comes out like burping or flatus this discomfort will be there and next time check if the baby is sucking too fast and gulping in air too. You will be more convinced. Usually I don't advice any medicines for this as they give only temporary relief.

The two best ways to relieve this distress is -
1. Do not put the baby in lying position after feeding till the baby burps out the swallowed air.
2. If still crying - put the baby in prone position and keep patting the back gently so that the baby passes off the flatus and gets relieved.

I wish your kid a speedy recovery. If you need any future medical consultation and suggestions, I will be glad to help. You can approach me at the following link.
